Working a clean look is made simpler with the wonders of touch latch cabinetry. This hardwood cabinet finished in an antiqued silver foil is a perfect hideaway for those half full booze bottles you’re saving in case someone actually wants a liqueur… or God forbid a mixed drink. It also stores wine… but not for long.
Vintage Storage Cabinet reworked by Glam Vintage & Moderne
You’ve probably seen pictures recently of IKEA items that are modified, repurposed and or customized. There are loads of great examples of this process fondly known as “IKEA Hacking”. When I was trying to think of a name for what Richard does to pieces he finds at auctions and estate sales somehow I didn’t think “hacking” was appropriate. So from now on I’ll refer to pieces Richard has upcycled or modified as “Glammed Up” or simply “Glammed”.
Use Cabinet Top to Showcase Fab Decor
Richard “glammed” this vintage china cabinet by having it painted in a satin black. He retained the original hardware but replaced the clear glass with sparkling antiqued mirror including the funky side panels. Now that you can’t see inside you can load the shelving in the upper and lower extremities with your everyday not so pretty dishes and fill drawers with junk that you can’t throw out.
Aluminum Skinned Cabinet at Glam Vintage & Moderne
If you don’t have built-ins in your living space then you’ve probably found that extra bits of cabinetry are essential. Unsightly objects like DVD’s, clicker mechanisms, booze and other unmentionables need a place to hide behind doors or drawers.
Inside the Aluminum Skinned Cabinet
Finding functional pieces that work in smaller spaces can be trying . Armoires are relatively easy to find but their excessive depth (once valued for hiding the bulbous backed TV) and height may fill too much of your real estate.
The gleam of the aluminum skin on this darling little industrial look wooden cabinet works in both modern and eclectic spaces. . And only the nosiest of guests will dare to look inside.
Richard has been taunted by a few customers to top his summer window and judging from accolades he’s been getting this one just about does it. Master painter Costa Dvorezky’s piece is a stand-out. His style is Old Master with an abstract backdrop…sheer genius. Richard has selected a quirky vintage mahogany cabinet topped with a full length back painted glass mirror to balance the space.
